Since 3.28.3+220315 we meet a serious problem when a user tries to upload files (question type upload)

The files upload on a provisory url
But it is then unreacheable when an admin's tries to download it from a url like

The server answers a

Disable for security reasons."

We found a correspondance on

Waiting for the fix we still use 3.28.2

Thanks & best regards
